How do I format a manuscript?

You got a couple of strange answers here. So I hope I can help. First, I'm going out on a limb and assuming you mean writing a story not formatting. You can google formatting your manuscript. Okay here you go. (Find a website, TV tropes, and learn about the bechdel test. Thest will make your writing stronger while you learn about relationships and learn what has been done ten-thousand times) First, decide what kind of story you want to tell. Forget what will make money or what is “hot”, chasing trends is not really where it is (once the trend hits the trend is done- traditional publishing takes 18-24 months to get a book out when accepted so you missed the boat if you write to chase trends). Tell the story you want to read. Tell the story you must tell. Find your main character then find your antagonist. You must make a strong antagonist! T make or break a story! A good opposing force is what is the catalyst for change. T force the hero of the story to act. T make the protagonist get into motion. T make things happen. Without one, there is no story. A weak antagonist makes a weak story. And starting with a strong antagonist avoids trite, cardboard badguys. Now, why are t so bad? Cranky? Ambitious? Why do t kick puppies? What do t want? How does that force your main character to become a better or worse character? What is their journey? Who impacts them? Finally, how does your setting affect everyone? Why does it matter? What else is going on? Torture your characters, add pressure, force them to react. Make ’em move toward the end. Chase them, hurt them, reward them then take it away. Do it again until you reach the end your story needs to have. Reward them or kill them (spiritually or literally). And fin.

And once again, you have to tell the entire story from start to finish. Now, there are three reasons a rejection letter can go through that first pass. 1. The First Reader Is A Bigger Fan. If you get rejected, especially a big one, the most probable cause is that the person you got the rejection from is a huge fan of something. Whether the book is from a young person or older author, if it is not in its genre or is not popular in the publishing world, you are going to get a big reaction. Usually these people know that they can sell their book to someone like you, so they have a reason to reject it. 2. It Gets To Be Too Good. You have to remember that sometimes rejection means people who would never buy this book are saying no. If there is an entire room full of people like.
